How to get it working.

Diskless Boot

  1. Unrecognized NIC

The driver for the JMicron JMC250 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller needs to be first installed, before the MD will netboot. Download the file jme-1.0.5.tbz2 which contains the driver from

Open a "terminal" and type the following

$ tar xjvf jme-1.0.5.tbz2
$ cd jme-1.0.5
$ make install

copy the module to the running kernel

$ cp jme.ko /lib/modules/2.6.27-17-generic/kernel/drivers/net/

To get a NIC to work, you have to modify a file, type the following in "terminal"

$ sudo <editor-of-choice> /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/modules

and add a single line for your NICs kernel module. In the above case the name of the module is


After adding the above line (and saving the change of course), you have to recreate the initial ramdisk.


or maybe

mkinitramfs -d /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/ -o /tftpboot/default/initrd

is enough.

This will create a new initial ramdisk for the first boot of new MDs containing the jme module. Now, the first boot of the diskless MD will succeed and a new diskless media director will be created.
